PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Kenosha Beef International has recalled seasoned beef products due to possible contamination with extraneous materials, specifically metal shavings.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on Monday, and in a press release stated the recall is on items that were produced on various dates from September 20th, 2019 to October 4th, 2019.

The recall is on cases containing eight 5 pound plastic bags of “Taco Bell Seasoned Beef Taco and Burrito filling” with the use by dates of “L2 11/4/19” to “L2 11/18/19”. The items also have a bear establishment number “EST. 10130.’

The beef was shipped to five distribution centers, and then shipped to restaurants nationwide.

There have been three costumer complaints, but no confirmed reports of an adverse reaction.  

FSIS asks customers to check their restaurant refrigerators and ask restaurants to not serve them but dispose immediately or return to the place of purchase.
